From the preface: " Since about the year 1400, when European exploration and colonization began, several species of animals have become extinct, and now extinction rates are increasing exponentially. Many of the recorded extinctions that have occurred in recent centuries have been caused by human activities. Most of the surviving species of big tropical animals will soon disappear outside of protected areas. Even in protected areas, large species are vulnerable except in the larger and most secure reserves. It is well known that larger animals often determine the spatial distribution of other species in ecological communities. When the large animals disappear, the ecological changes that follow will often be swift and profound. "77 species of mammals are now threatened in India. Kerala shares 24 of them. "The present book is designed with a view that it will be used as an identification manual by the interested workers who are fond of learning. Printed Pages: 58.
